Angkor Hike And Bike 7 days

Itinerary: Siem Reap – Angkor Wat – Phnom Bok – Beng Mealea – Phnom Kulen – Banteay Srey – Siem Reap

Seeing the temples of Angkor for the first time is an unforgettable experience, but what makes this trip special is the sights you’ll see from the seat of your bike and the people you’ll meet as you trek through small villages. Exploring the ancient Khmer ruins that surround Siem Reap in this manner brings you closer to the land and gives you a chance to feel the harmonious blend of the Cambodian nature and architecture. Start from the sleepy town of Siem Reap and cycle through the main section of the Angkor Archeological park, passing magnificent sandstone temples, looming towers, and imposing moats. Trek out to the ancient ruins of Rolous, stopping to speak to friendly locals as you pass through villages and rice paddies. Climb to the top of Phnom Bok hill for sweeping views of the countryside as sun sets over the endless fields. Pedal through the countryside to Beng Melea, a temple that is hidden amongst hundreds of years of jungle growth and towering trees. Soak in the natural beauty of the area as you camp in the peaceful countryside, enjoying star filled skies and fresh air. Trek up to the ‘River of a Thousand Lingas’ where crystalline waters flow over a mysterious riverbed carved with Hindu images. Swim in the refreshing waterfall and join the locals for a picnic lunch. Back on the bikes, head through smaller temples like Banteay Srey and Banteay Samre as you return to Siem Reap. A final excursion on the bikes takes you to the edges of the Tonle Sap lake where a boat trip through the floating villages offers a fascinating glimpse in to the resident’s way of life. Come explore the beauty of the Cambodian countryside and experience the wonder of its magnificent ruins as you trek and bike your way through this week-long journey!

It’s a real treat for anyone who loves nature, religion and history. En-route enjoy lunch and countryside stops where the local villagers welcome you with big smiles and shouts of ‘hello’!

This morning we take a short transfer to foot of the Phnom Kulen Hills, a sacred place where many Khmers like to hang out in the weekends. However, the attractions are deserted during the weekdays and it is a great treat to discover the “river of a 1000 lingas”, a river bed that has been carved in to with Hindu images. The trek takes you through many local villages and attractions, including a waterfall where you can enjoy a refreshing swim. Return to the campsite in the late afternoon. (Today’s trek is 27km)
Overnight in tented camp.
